    SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Event Update

    Latest Information 8 April, 2020 8:00 AM (PST)

    Defense + Commercial Sensing, scheduled for 26-30 April in Anaheim, California, will be transitioning from an in-person conference to a digital forum

    SPIE is actively following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local authorities. Following the most recent guidance of the CDC to cancel gatherings of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks, SPIE will cancel all of our in-person conferences currently scheduled through 20 May 2020.

    SPIE will refund or provide a credit toward future events for all money spent on registration, course registration, exhibit space, or sponsorship. Details regarding specific mechanisms for authors, attendees, and exhibitors will follow via email in the next days and be published on the event website.

    We regret the cancellation of our gathering in Anaheim. As a Society, we recognize the importance of disseminating and sharing technical contributions, developing collaborations and sharing results. We will soon share details for uploading recorded presentations and posting with an opportunity for online discussion with colleagues and presenters.

    The SPIE family extends best wishes to you, your colleagues, and your families as we navigate these uncharted waters together. After this health crisis passes, we look forward to gathering our community together for productive and enjoyable events where you and other scientists, engineers, students, researchers, and businesspeople will help create the future.
